Re: changing gearbox automatic transmission

Ok what's a networked control module, is it similar to a router connecting my computers together? If I took the entire loom from the later vehicle along with the gearbox and ECU's would I be able to configure my 850 T5's to communicate ? After all the engines are more or less the same it's the elect...

I'm thinking about changing my ageing AW50-42LE autobox for a later AW50-50 series. I've found a post where the user went downwards ie to the 42LE series so would like to know what obsticles will I have to overcome to fit a later automatic gearbox in my 97 850 T5 RHD UK Spec

Re: Bad motor mounts are fixed but i still have a noise-->

Have you changed the mount by the timing belt ? I had a failure that sounded exactly as you describe turned out the mount had completely failed so the engine was sitting on the subframe.

Re: OEM vs aftermarket brake rotors

I've never had an issue with aftermarket discs [rotors] I avoid the cheapest and go for mid range ones as I'm really hard on brakes. Currently running Black Diamond drilled and slotted 302mm with EBC Ceramic pads and race spec fluid.

Re: 850 Turbo will not start

Not starting Try changing the cam position sensor or crank sensor. Easter Saturday [which is a bank holiday here in the UK so no where open] my T5 decided to start playing up then decided nope it wouldn't go any further. Crank position sensors are expensive unless you're happy to get a used one. You...

Re: Calculation to upgrade intercooler

I found a larger intercooler 830mm x 330mm x 100mm with 76mm outlets need to plan how to fit it, as we have a drought [joke of the century it's rained every day since April 1] I'm having issues getting enough dry days to do the work. I cannot work out how to upload pictures so can't post the picture...

Uprated Automatic transmission 850 T5 UK spec

Does anyone know where I could locate an uprated automatic transmission for my RHD 850 T5 ? Here in the UK there are no companies who can supply one and as the USA has a far larger custom scene than us I'm guessing there's a shop that can do. If there isn't an uprated box does anyone know what other...

Re: will this turbo control valve from ipd work on a 94?

I run a late V70 turbo control valve on my 850 ok mines a 97 plate so the last of the last but I cannot see why it won't work on your 94 one, I know for certain they do not work on the really early UK Spec T5's It seems some dealers really don't know what will and wont work on T5's If it were me I'd...
